Today's Teaching Thoughts

S: Can we watch a funny video? 
Me: No. 
S: But I thought you were a cool T? 
Me: I'm a T - I care about your learning. 
S:That's the definition of an uncool teacher. 



A kid about to start eating a packet of chips by opening it then and there in my house tutor group class - as I'm trying to read the notices...
Me: Russell. .... Russell? *stares blankly at the student*
Other Student: Who's Russell?
Me: *eyebrow flick towards student with chips*
Other student: Huh? That's J...
Me: Russell is rustling his chips...
A few students and me begin cracking up. 
Other student: So punny miss!
